LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Numerous police agencies chased a driver of a stolen car who would not stop for officers in Bullitt County, Kentucky through WAVE Country into Indiana early Wednesday morning.

It started around 12:30 a.m. when officers spotted the stolen car in Shepherdsville and tried to pull over the driver. Police told us the car was reported stolen from Jeffersonville.

Shepherdsville Police Department Major Mike O'Donnell said two suspects were in the car and one of them, identified as Charles Kerr, took off on foot and was taken into custody.

The driver of the car sped off, and the police pursuit began.

Louisville Metro Police Department officers were asked to assist Bullitt County officers when the chase crossed county lines.

The pursuit came into Jefferson County on Preston Highway. Police said the suspect got on the Gene Snyder (I-265) and then took Interstate 65 North.

The Trimarc network of cameras captured the pursuit as it sped down I-65 near Crittenden Drive.
